Shawn Spears spent a great deal of time working for WWE. As a result, it should come as no shock that he wants to keep up with NXT despite being part of the AEW roster.
Spears recently spoke to Sportskeeda where he said that he doesn’t worry about ratings and such but he does still watch NXT. Here is the quote:
“I spent a great deal of time in NXT and I still watch NXT, I watch it on DVR. I watch AEW and if I’m not around, I’ll DVR AEW as well, so I watch all wrestling across all boards as best I can. Ratings do matter, but they matter more to Corporate Heads and things that dictate matters above my pay grade. For me personally, all that matters is that on Wednesday nights there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people talking about professional wrestling. In this day and age, that is a beautiful thing.”
Spears’ friend and business partner Tyler Breeze currently wrestles on NXT as well. Together the two run the Flatbacks Wrestling School in Florida.
